Caps Corner Bio
By the Fall of 2008 Mark Capuano (Cap) was comfortable and content with his life as an Evangelical Elder. Thinking he "had it all figured out" his thoughts were primarily on spending his remaining years in the company of friends and acquaintances within his tight circle of fellow believers in rural Ohio. God had other plans.
Spurred by a particularly harsh criticism of the Catholic Church he'd heard from a missionary to Italy, Cap decided to finally explore the history of Christianity in depth. Only this time, rather than reading what others had to say, he decided to go right to the source - the Apostolic Fathers. What he discovered changed his mind, his world, his life.
A study which began as an apology of Catholicism to be a legitimate, Biblically based Christian religion, ended up a defense of Orthodoxy itself, and the first step in a personal journey back to the Church of his youth. By the summer of 2011 the journey was complete. His book "Giving My Ancestors a Vote" details this thought process from a first person perspective. Mark's hope is that it will ultimately be of value as a starting point toward unity, which is the prayer of our Lord.
"Cap's Corner" is a collection of short thoughts and lessons, also intended to help others along their own person faith journey. Never at a loss for wit, you may find these articles interesting and enjoyable.
Cap currently resides in Bolivar, Ohio and is a member of The Church of The Holy Trinity in Zoar. A professional chemical/materials engineer, he is now retired from The Timken Steel Company. In addition to Jesus Christ, his passions include music, reading, and fishin'.
